Joseph Smith Papers Project Blogger's Gathering

Here's the introductory statement from Church Historian Richard Turley, the audio feed for this part of the webcast was scrambled for some users. The video is sideways for the first minute or so but it gets regular right quick.

Nate Oman and Ben Huff contemplate.

What was this? FedEx says My copy of RT2 should be getting dropped off on my door any moment now.

Super secret blogger's enclave at the Church History Library. More notes and pictures to come.

I'm following wvs' liveblogging over at BOAP. Was there a net feed? Or was this live in person only for all you Utah folk?

Dang. How do I get into the Super Secret Blogger cabal that gets such invites? :P

the narrator said...

So is this why Ben Huff hasn't gotten a program up for SMPT, which is only 2 weeks away?

Ben Park said...

I'm disappointed that you didn't get a picture of when I was mimicking Nate for like ten minutes.

BHodges said...

Ha! That was early on, yeah?

Great photos. I'm still curious what question Ben Park asked that no one could hear, I'm sure it was really good.

BHodges said...

PS- Notes forthcoming.

Blair,

Was that a covert video clip? ;-)

David G. said...

Thanks, Blair. I love the pic of Robin noticing you take the pic.

Acquinas: Luckily, Ardis asked my question after I emailed her. It was about how the revelations were used during the succession crisis.

the narrator said...

Was there anything mentioned about distribution--particularly why new books are not sold online through Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, or Borders?

Clair Barrus said...

Eh, Blair, Word - back at ya!
